Bedford Borough Council fines Mulberry Property Developments Ltd over planning violations

At Luton Magistrates Court last month, Mulberry Property Developments Ltd was found guilty of three offences of failing to comply with the requirements of a Breach of Condition Notice. These violations pertain to their development at School Lane, Roxton.

The court imposed the maximum possible fine of £2,500 per offence plus a victim surcharge of £2,000. The Council was also awarded its full costs of £5,581, bringing the total financial penalties to £15,081.

Jon Shortland, Chief Officer for Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Growth, said, "Bedford Borough Council is committed to ensuring that development within our area proceeds in accordance with the rules and regulations that protect our community and environment. We will continue to take enforcement action where necessary to uphold these standards."

The Breach of Condition Notice was issued to Mulberry Property Developments Ltd after repeated failures to comply with the stipulated planning conditions at the School Lane site. The Council's actions reflect its dedication to maintaining the integrity of local planning processes and safeguarding the interests of its residents.

The Council urges all developers to cooperate fully with planning requirements to avoid similar legal actions. For further information on planning regulations and compliance, please visit the Bedford Borough Council website or contact the Planning Department directly.
